WaPo: Riots Just A Way For Youth To Say "I'm Here, Man. I'm Here."

Seriously. Their headline: Rage of French Youth Is a Fight for Recognition.

"It's not a political revolution or a Muslim revolution," said Rezzoug. "There's a lot of rage. Through this burning, they're saying, 'I exist, I'm here.' "

Apparently France was all out of greeting cards, so these youths were well-nigh compelled to substitute molotov cocktails.

In related news, O.J. Simspon just stated he sawed off the head of Niccole Brown in an effort to ask, "How come you don't call me anymore?"

I'll give the liberal media points for consistency. Turns out, they are quite willing use the "root causes of violence" to justify violence in just about every situation, even violence affecting their favorite rogue state, France.

There's very little the media cannot apologize for so long as it's perpetrated by non-caucasians.

Thanks to Knemmon.

Mark Steyn: A New "Dark Ages" of "Permanent Conflict" Sad but probably true.

This time it began with the Jews, but it didn't end there:

The notion that Texas neocon arrogance was responsible for frosting up trans-Atlantic relations was always preposterous, even for someone as complacent and blinkered as John Kerry. If you had millions of seething unassimilated Muslim youths in lawless suburbs ringing every major city, would you be so eager to send your troops into an Arab country fighting alongside the Americans? For half a decade, French Arabs have been carrying on a low-level intifada against synagogues, kosher butchers, Jewish schools, etc. The concern of the political class has been to prevent the spread of these attacks to targets of more, ah, general interest. They seem to have lost that battle. Unlike America's Europhiles, France's Arab street correctly identified Chirac's opposition to the Iraq war for what it was: a sign of weakness.

Chirac has called for "a spirit of dialogue and respect," again putting his faith in the power of diplomacy.

Diplomacy has its virtues, of course, but its efficacy has always by limited by its major flaw: The word "No." You can call for all the dialogue and respect you like, but if your would-be interlocutor simply says "No," that's it for diplomacy.

John Kerry could never seem to understand that with regard to Iraq or our "historic allies."

Is This Really A "Muslim Uprising" Or Just Some Good Old Fashioned Street Violence? There's some debate about this; to me, though, it does seem to look an awful lot like an uprising. If there's no Al Qaeda like ideology behind this, but more of an inchoate desire to hold terriotory Youths of Undetermined Ethnic Extraction can call their own, is that really any better?

Feisty Republican Whore has some quotes about this:

Some are even calling for the areas where Muslims form a majority of the population to be reorganized on the basis of the "millet" system of the Ottoman Empire: Each religious community (millet) would enjoy the right to organize its social, cultural and educational life in accordance with its religious beliefs.

In parts of France, a de facto millet system is already in place. In these areas, all women are obliged to wear the standardized Islamist "hijab" while most men grow their beards to the length prescribed by the sheiks.

The radicals have managed to chase away French shopkeepers selling alcohol and pork products, forced "places of sin," such as dancing halls, cinemas and theaters, to close down, and seized control of much of the local administration.

A reporter who spent last weekend in Clichy and its neighboring towns of Bondy, Aulnay-sous-Bois and Bobigny heard a single overarching message: The French authorities should keep out.

"All we demand is to be left alone," said Mouloud Dahmani, one of the local "emirs" engaged in negotiations to persuade the French to withdraw the police and allow a committee of sheiks, mostly from the Muslim Brotherhood, to negotiate an end to the hostilities.

Is it any better that what motivates many of these Youths of Undetermined Ethnic Extraction is not seizing land from Israel but instead seizing land from France?

The problem that many of these YOUEE's have a loyalty -- first, last, and only -- to their race/culture/religion and none at all to the state they happen to be residing in, and that furthermore the unknown religion in question is read by many to have the political imperative of seizing territory from the Western infidels by whatever means necessary and refusing to be governed by any but their own.
